The descent finishes were commentated on by the tour organizers, iirc they wanted to discourage the MTF finishes which were excessively controlled and resulted in like 30 seconds of actual racing in the last 500 meters or so, aka Grand Colombier last year

We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.



Yeah last year's mountain top finishes were all pretty tame as jumbo just paced to the last km.

It still wasn't as bad as 2016 which is almost certainly the worst 21st century tour, except maybe 2012.

2016 was the maximum Sky Train year and they ruined like three or four complete mountain stages with their poo poo and I have a lifetime's worth of contempt for every member on that team.

They're like the T2000. You can split them up but their train just pulls right back together.

Cav thought he could win without Morkov dragging him to the line and then hitting the brakes to let him by.
